BEFORE CONTACTING US:
Rubber stamps are an end-product whose limited intended personal use is "rubber stamping" by hand. Rubber stamps are NOT a free source of art for commercial projects of any size whether for profit or not. You are purchasing the physical rubber stamp NOT the rights to the design on said stamp.
Licensing information is located further below.
For those who have a hard time understanding what this means... We will illustrate... if you purchase a rubber stamp with a Mickey Mouse© design, your ONLY legal right is to hand stamp your projects with said stamp. You are never given the right to create anything for resale, nor to reproduce said Mickey Mouse in any shape or form... at all time Mickey Mouse remains the exclusive property of Disney© .... our designs are no different!
We clearly indicate on each stamp detail page which designs can be used within the Angel Policy and which may not. The terms of the Angel Policy are:
Below is the legal detail of what was stated above:
Angel Policy for Stamp Francisco©, Fruit Basket Upset©, Ivory Coast Trading Poste®, Gumbo Graphics©, Hippo Heart©, Eclectic Omnibus©, Art by Moonlight© and Imagine©:
- Must be stamped by hand
- Quantity 20 or less per design
- Must be for an occasional event (personal use.. church bazaar, schoold event,) NOT an on-going venture (commercial)
- Credit must be given to Stamp Francisco or as described below whenever possible.
We have both original designs, for which we have an exclusive copyright, and designs that are adapted from works in the public domain. Some designs are trademarked and may not be used in any "commercial" project (ie: logo). Item 24-001, 24-043, 24-044 and 24-065.
For designs adapted from works in the public domain - while the original is copyright free, our adaptations are copyrighted 1982 through the present.
Stamp Francisco LLC is an Angel Company. We are a user-friendly company and want our stamps to be used and enjoyed.
You may use Stamp Francisco©, Ivory Coast Trading Poste®, Fruit Basket Upset©, Gumbo Graphics©, Hippo Heart©, Eclectic Omnibus©, Art by Moonlight© and Imagine© designs to create items for sale as long as the images are stamped BY HAND and as described below.
This use has been surpassed when quantities of greater than 20 are produced and/or the items are made by hired employees. The basic idea is that we want to help folks who wish, for example, to sell cards at a church bazaar...this would be a one-time event with a limited number of items made for resale. Our designs and our stamps are NOT a source of artwork for any commercial project. For further details or permission on additional use, please "Contact Us". Please READ the licensing information located below before contacting us... unless you are willing to license our designs... the answer is NO.
